Ending Biphobia in LGBTQ Spaces is Not the Job of Bisexuals

National LGBTQ Task Force Blog

When I first came out as bi, I eagerly sought out the LGBTQ community. Seeing that lovely shiny “B” right there in the acronym, I waited to be embraced by this new, wonderful rainbow of a community. I was taken aback that my first forays into this community space actually made me feel worse than I did before. The spaces I entered were very monosexual (experiencing attraction only to one gender, unlike bi, which is an attraction to two or more genders) focused. I felt awkward going to events with my partner, fearing I wasn’t “queer enough” and that I didn’t “deserve” to be included. At some events emcees regularly derided bipeople, either knowing we were in the room and simply not caring or they believed that we simply didn’t exist.
